Hollister, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: Switch from L1 (Blanket) Visa to Green Card/Permanent Resident and then on to Citizen

This question was answered before, but I was missing some details. I have included more details:

My longterm Argentinian partner (8 years) has a L1 (Blanket) visa. We are looking at seeing if we can change her status from a L1 Visa to Permanent Resident/Green card with hopes of one day working toward citizenship. What would be the best and smoothest route for her? Through her company or through our marriage? Thank you. - Allen

A: As the Myron said, marriage is the quickest. The other option would be an EB-1C. Both don't seem to be problematic. Please speak with an attorney to help with either or both.
